Discover Wine, located in Somerville, NJ, first put out their carpet in November of 2004. The store’s concept began in July 2003 when an architect (Kevin Cahill), a banker (Ken Rommel) and an anesthesiologist (Mark Pillon) met at several functions for their children. At each get together they would take turns supplying the wines and soon they became well known for picking fine wines around a $15 price tag. What began as a social interaction became the foundation of their business plan. “See what kids can do?” said Cahill.
Discover Wine’s motto is “Great value means more than a great price.” They make it easy to choose a delicious wine because the wines are arranged by how they taste—not by where they come from or which grapes they’re made with. It’s easy to get great value when you buy their wines because they are hand-selected and pre-tasted from the most exciting, new and undiscovered vineyards around the world. New selections are offered to the public at wine tasting sessions every Saturday from 1 to 4pm. Approximately 50 to 60 people attend these sessions. In addition to the Saturday sessions, Discover Wine provides team building events for major corporations and is partnering with RVCC’s Corporate and Continuing Education Department providing wine tasting classes to the community.
